We put up a gate at first for her own safety but as it turns out she's actually quite adept at climbing the stairs.
So we took down the gate and began the "don't go downstairs without mommy" training.
She's been, resistant. :)
Blatantly so at times.
More deceptive at others. She thinks if she's low enough to the ground, where the stairs cover her eyes and she can't see me then I can't see her. Not so sweet girl, not so.
Wish us luck on this venture.
